Issue 26d – April Fool’s 2009

An “April Fool’s” issue of ghazals? These ghazals are not a prank on you, reader, but variously humorous or unusual uses of the form, for a kind of manic humor, for satire, for cursing (the poet’s ancient power). Read them lightly and listen to their melodies and rhythms and enjoy their multifarious word-plays.
